Bin Laden Statements, 1994-2004

A U.S. government compilation of interviews and other public statements issued by Usama bin Laden between 1994 and 2004 is now publicly available (pdf).

The texts were translated by the CIA’s Foreign Broadcast Information Service (which has since been succeeded by the Open Source Center).

The 289-page collection has not been approved for public release, but a copy was obtained by Secrecy News. See “Compilation of Usama Bin Laden Statements, 1994 – January 2004,” Foreign Broadcast Information Service, January 2004.

    Interesting that the CIA’s FBIS apparently didn’t consider the so-called Bin Laden “confession tape” allegedly recorded Nov 01 (released to the public in Dec 01) to be a ‘Bin Laden’ statement- from the Table of Contents:
